Spring is in the air, and the battle is on

Oden Ridge news

This morning I had the same battle as usual. The battle is to keep my cat from eating my birds. It’s like the cartoon except my birds are wild and if Kitty Kat gets out and she does frequently, there is a war between she and I.
I feed them and the squirrels on my deck. They, like Tweety Bird, let me know the cat is stalking them.
I also have a big red dog. Turbo is an Irish setter and too smart for a dog.
My granddaughter decided I needed one of her puppies so now I have two dogs. Blue is half blood hound and half Husky (an accident) but the smartest and cutest thing you ever saw. We named him Blue because he has the bluest eyes you have ever seen. He is at that stage that he chews everything in sight.
My daughter Leisha has a horse and two half-wolf, half- dogs. They are beautiful and so smart. She also has one rooster left from the chickens she had. The rooster stays right under her window at night. Must I say she doesn’t need an alarm clock. When she goes outside dogs and rooster follow her everywhere. The horse also comes to the edge of the fence and whinnies all the time she is outside. Aren’t animals wonderful and they don’t talk back!
Albert and I have been enjoying going up to the senior center at Eva. He is a senior but I’m not!
I have been quilting some. The other ladies can quilt circles around me but I’m getting better.
Ms. Ruth Livingston enjoyed attending her grandson’s wedding in Gallatin, Tenn. last week. The groom was Wesley Richard Harvey, son of Rosemary and the late John Richard Harvey. The bride was Melody Kay Haile from Gallatin, Tenn. Her parents are Ferrell and Kay Haile. Ruth said it was a beautiful wedding.
We need to keep Ruby and Hubert Oden in our prayers. She is still fighting infection in her system from her toe that was infected. She has to go every day to Huntsville for treatment. Also Shefton Taylor is having heart problems. Please pray for him and Ola, too.
Tommy Shelton has been sick. He has the flu or some kind of bug. This seems to be going around.
Athelia Gibbs, her sister Joyce Whipple and other ladies from Rock Creek enjoyed a ladies retreat at Pigeon Forge last week.
Eva library held a genealogy meeting at the library on Thursday night. The guest speaker was Jessie Ruth Green Sturivdant from Huntsville.
She was born and grew up in Eva. She is a volunteer at the Morgan County Archives. Everyone enjoyed the history of Eva. They later had snacks and enjoyed reminiscing about growing up in Eva and Oden Ridge.
Our family enjoyed a picnic at the park on Sunday to celebrate our granddaughter Ciera’s birthday.
